Subject Re: HttpClient with CircularRedirectException
Date Tue, 28 Oct 2014 09:45:35 GMT
I am still not convinced that it is a server side problem because other
clients are able to handle the redirects to some sort of solution. I
believe there might be some issue in the redirect strategy of the HTTP
client. Is it better i go ahead and raise a jira for this one.
